Angels & Airwaves Release New Song, ‘Tunnels’: Listen

Angels & Airwaves, the side-project of blink-182 co-founder Tom DeLonge, is about to release their fifth album on December 9, titled The Dream Walker. The group released a new song from the album, titled “Tunnels,” and DeLonge gave a little interview to Billboard.

“I think we found the house we’re going to start recording the next record in,” DeLonge said of Blink’s follow-up to 2011’s Neighborhoods. “That’s a big deal, finding location, for us. That’s usually the biggest obstacle, finding a place everyone can get to.”

DeLonge goes on to reveal “I think the goal on this record is to really craft it together form scratch as much as we can, but it’ll be a good mix of things that are partially planned out and a lot of stuff we just really dig in and create from scratch, with everyone’s influence. Our best records were made that way.”
